Pic is linked.


I'm pretty good at taking a Glock apart except today was my first time doing the mag release and takedown lever. Very slightly bent the take down spring but i bent it back (really not much, the last 2 coils were on a 15-degree angle)

Went to put the gun back together and the picture is what I'm left with...

DO I need a new takedown lever spring or did I do something else? I took it all back apart and nothing seemed weird.

Thanks.


Edit: The takedown spring has plenty of pressure, is the same length as it was from the factory, and rides smoothly up and down in its channel... WTF.
Edit: Was so damn wore out from the day I didnt put in the Locking block. I cant find it now

It looks like the barrel is behind the locking block.

I have a Gen 5 G45 and the slide can be pulled off by lifting BEFORE the slide goes fully forward.

My first thought was it takes a lot of talent to get a barrel in that location. Not meaning to be a smart ass... but as a career long Glock Armorer I have never seen this condition.

The barrel should never be able to sit behind the locking block!

No what you need is a revolver.  They wont do that.

Please don't give Glock any big ideas.  You know they're still striving for perfection.

GD is the other way. This is for troubleshooting.
